Shopkeeper: Don’t close it. You should never close a book until you’ve read something from it. Just a sentence or a word. It can be very, very revealing. Just read something, anything. Read from the top then.

“You can’t have been in one place and another at the same time. Of all those lives, which one is the right one?”
“Each of these lives is the right one. Every path is the right path. Everything could have been anything else and it would have just as much meaning.”
Mr. Nobody (2009)
